The hotel does not accept MakeMyTrip reservation. So they once again charged me for the room. They also did not accept any discounts, because I was there with family I did not have a choice and paid for the room.

Beach view is superb in this!! Rooms and food is not good, rooms are not so clean and food is not so worth what you paid. Then you can enjoy at the beach!!!

Outlook is good!! Swimming pool is good!

They don't honor makemytrip voucher unless and otherwise till they receive a copy. We were made to stay out for an hour connecting makemytrip and hotel. No indoor game was available. Still under renovation. Room floors were not that clean. We had to face the same issue again as the hotel computer was not working and they were not able to confirm the voucher from makemytrip.

This may have been a good place at one time, but it was pretty awful this time. Rooms were clean, AC worked. But absolutely no frills. No drinking water, no towels or soap in room. Had to ask for it. Staff are the saving grace, as they were helpful and nice when you asked for help. Only Indian food for breakfast which is not served till 8:30am. However, they did produce an egg and toast when I asked. Definitely was not worth the cost.

I booked for AC cottage looking at the Picture in the website and they cheated by giving me some cheap and dirty room.

I lost trust in the websites and will not make another mistake once more.

Breakfast is very limited and does not serve the customer needs, it is more resort oriented than customer oriented. Please nobody book this hotel.

Great location, good facilities, average food, bad service and room. Private beach access from resort is plus point. In our case, few bachelors have spoils the stays. Good location but service is not that much great. Overall, you can stay here with the price they quote.

Everything was good. Except room which was so horrible and poor mattresses. Except the room, everything was nice. Especially swimming pool, nearby beach view, food, etc. I suggest Golden Sun Resort for marvellous beach side views and delicious food items.

The hotel was not clean at all with bathrooms were maintained in a hopeless way. I had to upgrade to a cleaner room (Same size and amenities though) at an additional cost of 1200. Food and kitchen were very unhygienic. You don't even feel like eating there. I think this place is okay for bachelors who are on a binge and want to spend time at the pool. For families, please stay at a different place.

We were asked to wait at reception for 20 minutes before someone can attend us. Then, the person told that they have not received any confirmation for the room. We booked one Suite which was dirty (to say the least). There was dust in the room, no water bottles, no towels, no tea/coffee. We asked for towel and got after an hour. The location is good and food is good. Otherwise it does not have anything good to offer.

Totally waste of money. Room not clean and food too costly. It is not a good place for relaxing. If you want to relax, kindly choose other place. Only good thing is the private beach. Not good for party and relaxation. Rooms are not clean. Price is too high as compared to the market (Market kurkure rate is Rs. 10 but here it's 20).
